"Let, even for those who were not passionate about sports, our events will be a great start on this path. Let Baku residents and guests of the city know that every week they and their family, friends, acquaintances can have a good time playing sports. The exercises presented in the classes are simple, they are more aimed at making people feel involved in sports and enjoy the activities, which will lay the foundation for constant training. Gymnastics and athletics are the basic types of physical culture and sports activities that underlie all disciplines. In addition, many people love sports, but feel embarrassed or constrained because they are not professionals. But sport is different, and it is not only for professionals," Vasileva said.
According to the Deputy Minister, the participants of the "Sport for All" project will be awarded certificates, in addition, in the future it is planned to award incentive prizes in various categories, among which may be "The youngest participant", "The oldest participant", "Permanent participant", etc.
